Second Arrest Made in the Murder of an Arlington Mother

Police have arrested a second person in connection to the murder of an Arlington mother last December, police say. 

Investigators said 33-year-old April Vancleave listed some jewelry for sale online.

Then, she and her husband agreed to meet the potential buyers inside the Target store on West Arbrook Boulevard, thinking they would be safe in a busy public place.

But when Vancleave and her husband came to meet the potential buyers at Target, they didn't show. Detectives believe they followed the couple home, instead, and when Vancleave's husband dropped her off and left for work, police said two men pulled up, stole her purse and shot her once, killing her.

Officers arrested Alex Menor Diaz on Friday in Keller.

Diaz goes by other names, so officials are still working to confirm his identity.

He is in the Arlington Jail with a bond set at $1 million.

In February, Mario Hernan Lopez Gomez was arrested and charged with capital murder for his role in this case.
